Deputies seeking ID of Katy-area auto shop burglar

A Katy business owner is hoping someone will come forward with information on a man who stole more than $4,000 worth of merchandise from his auto body shop.

Thomas Trevino is a co-owner of the S&T Auto Body shop on Cinnamon Drive.

He says Friday night a man broke in and stole an A/C unit as well as several other metal items. Trevino says his shop was targeted a few years back, so he fenced in the property and even got a guard dog.

"I thought we were doing everything you could possibly do to deter people but apparently it don't matter what you do, they are gonna get what they wanna get, when they wanna get it," he said.

Trevino says he believes the suspect had been at his shop before because he knew exactly where the items he wanted were stored.

If you have information about the case, call Harris County Precinct 5 deputies at 281-463-6666.
